Average client rating (based on 191 attendee reviews)
Introduction to Production Engineering covers fundamental concepts, following the hydrocarbons production cycle. The course starts with a revision of Reservoir Engineering fundamental notions, focusing then in the effect of well completion in production and finally concentrating in the most common operations and well interventions.
The course has class exercises to ensure the concepts are properly understood and animations are presented to illustrate the operation of downhole tools.
The is primarily designed for non-Production Engineers with the objectives:
- Become conversant on major topics within the production engineering
- Develop empathy for the challenges faced by the industry related to production engineering topics
- Develop the vocabulary and understanding of roles necessary to facilitate discussions with other professionals on production engineering topics
